"I bought this for the library and picked it up when I was supposed to catalogue it. Now it is detouring on my desk to be read during lunch break(s) before being displayed on the library's New Acquisition Shelf. Gosh, this is heartbreakingly sad: All those reminders of lovers and loved ones lost to sickness or war, tokens of bittersweet one-night-stands and souvenirs of betrayal, abuse and hurt burn a hole for sure."

"I read an abridged, translated version as a child. I expect my reading experience of the complete novel as an adult to be different." Aug 10, 2016 04:39AM
